Want a real life example of a Badass Spaniard? Antonio is your man. He began his acting career at age 19 with a series of films by director Pedro Almodovar. He is well-known for playing Zorro in The Mask of Zorro and its sequel Legend Of Zorro.

Kids are more likely to remember him as Puss-In-Boots in Shrek (effectively Zorro as a cat) and Gregorio Cortez in Spy Kids.

He is notably less typecast in Spain, where he is considered a very versatile leading man (thanks to that stint under Almodovar).

And he sings. Beautifully.
